Having worked on a few dozen websites, I know it is easy to forget what changes you have made to the underlying code after a while. In an effort to avoid that with this site, I’ll be documenting the changes to the site itself in this category. As I imagine this sort of information will only be interesting to me (and more for documentation than anything else), The first change to the website was to add a separate category for this type of post (I won’t document each category addition) and then to find a way to not show certain categories of posts on the main page. After a bit of searching, I found the Elegant Category (in)Visibility plugin. It lets you decide how/if each category of post is displayed.
There are lots of neat plugins for WordPress, and that is one of the main reasons we’re using it. I’ll be installing others right quickly.
